Aluminium Beverage Cans

IS Standard : IS 14407:2023

Aluminum beverage cans, or just "aluminum cans," are a common and iconic container used to package a wide range of drinks, such as beer and carbonated soft drinks. Manufacturers and customers alike find these cans to be handy and sustainable because to their lightweight, strength, and capacity for recycling. The exceptional ability of aluminum beverage cans to maintain the freshness and quality of their contents is one of its most notable qualities. Because aluminum is oxygen- and light-tight, it keeps drinks from deteriorating and preserves their flavor. They have a high worldwide recycling rate and are very recyclable. Aluminum cans are an environmentally responsible option since recycling them conserves energy and materials. Because of their lightweight design, they emit fewer carbon emissions during distribution and save money on transportation.

The Indian Standard IS 14407:1996 outlines the norms and technical specifications for aluminum beverage cans. Aluminum beverage cans that are produced in accordance with IS 14407:1996 are guaranteed to meet strict quality criteria. As a result, the cans are made to be leak-proof, structurally solid, and able to hold the integrity of the beverage within. Manufacturers who follow safety and quality requirements while producing beverage cans reduce their liability for mishaps, injuries, or contamination brought on by non-compliant goods.

NOTE: Please take note that prior to releasing their products on the Indian market, all manufacturers of aluminum beverage cans are required to get the ISI Mark Certification.

An important factor in guaranteeing the safety and quality of many items, including aluminum beverage cans, is ISI certification. In the end, this certification ensures that aluminum beverage cans follow strict safety requirements and technical standards established by the BIS, protecting customers and maintaining the integrity of the drinks they drink. It guarantees adherence to set technical requirements and enhances consumer confidence in the goods they buy by providing assurance that the packaging is dependable, secure, and preserves beverage quality.


About ISI / BIS Certification

Indian Standards Institute, or ISI was renamed the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) in 1987. The official mark that the Bureau of Indian Standards provides for manufacturers of various goods is the ISI Mark. It is used to indicate compliance with Indian standards (IS) set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and has been used as a conformity marking for industrial products. Manufacturers received permission from BIS to use the ISI Mark on items that comply with relevant Indian requirements through the product certification program. 

Only manufacturers (domestic or foreign) who produce the finished product will be awarded ISI Certification. This will not be given to any product importers, traders, dealers, or distributors.
